Tron is a blockchain that allows developers to create scalable and user-friendly applications and users to exchange cryptos. TRX is the native token of the Tron blockchain used for staking and other transactional purposes.

TRX recently surpassed AVAX to become the 15th largest crypto in the market. TRX is currently trading at $0.06, down by 4 per cent in the last seven days. After reaching a local high of $0.072 in August, TRX has been creating a series of higher lows and has been unable to move above its upper trendline resistance.

Chart-TRX (2)ET CONTRIBUTORS

If we look at the chart closely, the pattern appears to be a falling wedge pattern. However, TRX, led by a lack of momentum and investor interest, was pulled down further.

Led by adverse market conditions, negative indicators like a weak RSI of 37 and trade below all moving averages, TRX prospects don’t appear strong. TRX would need a strong push towards $0.061 and further towards $0.063 to mark a clear momentum shift. In case of a downfall, June lows will come into play.

Major levels
Resistance: $0.061, $0.062, $0.063
Support: $0.059, $0.058
